Parade Marching Band
Thanks for your interest in applying to participate in the FedEx Ground Parade at Highmark First Night Pittsburgh!
We believe that adding marching bands to the parade will bring vibrancy to the celebration and highlight your community in a city-wide celebration like has never before been done.
This year’s parade is packed with dozens of performance groups and loaded with artistic surprises, including the traditional art cars and giant puppets from Studio Capezzuti. There’s simply no other parade like it. The parade starts at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center at 8 pm and runs along Penn Ave before turning right on 6th Street toward the Allegheny River.
